Alberto Sileoni contradicted Alberto Fernández: "Teachers who pay income tax are a small group"


The former Minister of Education of the Nation and current official of Axel Kicillof distanced himself from the statements of the President, who was questioned by the teachers' unions.

In the midst of criticism and questioning of President Alberto Fernández for having said that "the current concern" of teachers "is not paying Profits", the former Minister of National Education and current official of Axel Kicillof, Alberto Sileoni, contradicted him and He maintained that

"the majority is not reached by the tax"


"The truth is that the majority is not reached,

it is a smaller group of teachers

," said Sileoni when asked if that, as the president said, was the main concern of teachers before the start of classes.

In a radio interview with AM 750, Sileoni stressed that this issue "always comes up as a concern in the parity" but insisted that it is only "some teachers, not those who are just starting out."

Fernández ignited the controversy this Monday when, during an act for the inauguration of a school in Chaco, he maintained that currently "the concern" of Argentine teachers is "not paying profits."

He said this after celebrating the fact that

the teachers' union closed before the start of classes

and thus, according to him, "the problem of salary" was removed from the teachers.

"Something unusual is to have closed the teaching parity 15 days before the start of classes and

take our teachers out of the problem of their salary

," the president began by saying.

And he affirmed: "When we came to the Government, the concern of the teachers was to see how they improved a salary that had fallen to the bottom of the well and today with joy I

hear that their concern is that they do not have to pay Profits

because their salaries have grown so so they start to be affected.

The agreement reached with the teacher unions was 33.5% until July, which raised the minimum wage to 130,000 pesos as of March.

Today, the income tax floor is $404,062.

Sileoni, current director in the Buenos Aires General Directorate of Culture and Education, specified that the tax reaches those who have

"a long-term career and already have seniority

. "
